Here are the instructions for this month's recipe card challenge/exchange:

1. Click HERE (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=13_189&products_id=6575) for this month's starter kit; it will be free to those who participated in the prior month's challenge. Please use this kit (or papers/elements you design in the same color palette) so the cards will "coordinate" and to ensure we don't violate other designers' TOU.

2. The general theme for this month's cards is your favorite FAMILY RECIPE. This can be something you like to make for those you love, a recipe from your great grandma, whatever you want. This is a wide open theme ~ anything goes! Be creative and have fun with your cards! If you need different tags for your card(s), send me an e-mail and I'll make them for you.

3. Design your recipe card(s) however you'd like. Include your name, forum name, e-mail address ~ whatever you want ~ on the card.

4. Create your original card at 6" wide X 4" tall (1800 and 1200 pixels) and save it as a 300 ppi jpeg, quality between 8 to 10. These are the print-quality cards that will be shared with all participants. You will also need to resize your card at 72 ppi to post in the gallery.

WHEN FINISHED with your card(s), do the following 3 things:

1. E-mail your print-quality, 300 ppi recipe card to LetMeScrapbook@hotmail.com so it can be included in the download file at the end of the month. Several participants have asked for blank copies of the cards you design, so if you're willing to send me both (with and without the words), that would be great!

2. Upload a picture of your 72 ppi card to the Recipe Card Challenge Gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1042). Please upload only your actual recipe card ~ not the blank cards.

3. Post a link here in this forum thread no later than February 28 so you'll be eligible for your store points.

At the end of the month, all participants will receive your points and a link to download all the cards created that month. Bon appétit!!

Reminder about POINTS EARNED for completing this challenge:
• You'll earn 10 points for the first recipe card and 5 points for each additional recipe card.
• If you complete all theStudio challenges this month, you'll earn a 100 point BONUS.
• 100 points = $1 to the store.
• Points may be redeemed at any time. PM Toiny or any Admin at the Studio.

Happy 1-year anniversary to this challenge! Your participation has far exceeded my expectations ~ thanks so much for joining in and making this so much fun! This month's starter kit is based on one of my favorite full-size store kits: Luv U More. I can't wait to see all your recipes and creative card layouts and designs!

If you participated in January and want the coupon code for the February kit before I do a mass mailing to everyone this weekend, drop me an e-mail message and I'll send it to you. Can't wait to see what this month brings!

Aww, come on now...you are way too quick for us this month! I had just come on to aggravate you a bit! I wanted to holler "Oh-h-h-h, Maurine, where are you???"

Well, in that case, I'm just gonna grab my kit and go home...(and pout!) I wanted to play and nobody to play with...grumble, grumble, grr...

Oh, by the way LOVE the colors you have this month!! Cute kit!

Another great kit, have to check my recipe stash to see what I want to share this month, so I guess I'll practice patience and wait for your mass mailing.
Thanks again for this fun challenge.

Here's my card for February. Now this is my own, 'thrown together' dish I have made for years, so you might have to 'tweak' a bit to suit your tastes. My kids always loved it, my daughter once said she tried to make it and thought I actually used Brown rice--you can of course, but mine got brown from the technique used to make it.

Here is how I put them in. You can edit your own. After you put the link in the way you want it, click on it to bring up your posted page. Scroll down to the information below the photo or page. Find the direct link. Copy the whole link. Now go back to your post in the forum. You can edit your own, so click the edit button. When the edit button opens, click the button that says Go Advanced. Move your curser to where you want the picture and click there. Now look up to the top row of icons (B I U and so on) and click on the one that looks like a postcard with two mountains. A window will open with a place for you to paste the direct link. Be sure to click into the part already typed there or to knock it out first. Save changes and it should show up.

They are still working on it -- and also working on fixing the gallery so the most current uploads show up top instead of at the bottom of the screen. Fingers crossed that both get fixed soon!

UPDATE: It looks like the gallery issue with the most current showing up top has been fixed -- hooray! Now as soon as the square view is resolved, I'll be a happy camper!


Maurine,

Have you heard anything from the owner and managers of the site about when the non square layouts will show up properly in all the areas of the gallery?

I can't believe I posted my first card almost a year ago and never quite figured out what it meant to post to the forum. I will get this digital scrapbooking thing yet. I really appreciate this as an opportunity to start scrapbooking. I have not made an acutal photo page yet but, I enjoy practicing on the recipe cards.

I've received several cards today with people worried they'd missed the deadline. Since this is a short month -- I'm keeping this open until March 2. So if you haven't sent something yet and thought you were too late, you've got one more day to sneak in! Thanks, everyone, for all the great cards again this month...

I have begun printing many of these and even gave some to my 2 daughters who live close. They loved them. I don't have any of the 4 x 6 recipe boxes so have them in a notebook for now, but it is getting too full which means I will have to sort them all out . . . blah, blah, blah.
